Netizens reacts as Dong showed his support to abscbn.
Some artists from GMA Network sent sympathies to ABSCBN about the expiration of their contract.
In his Twitter account, Dingdong Dantes said that even though they are working in different tv stations, they are all in the same induo.
“We might be in different yard, but we are one in the media industry. We have one love for the many talents and crafts under this Network, the products and output of which, directly or indirectly benefit the lives of millions of Filipinos,” Dong said, Tuesday.
ABS contract is scheduled to expire this March 2020 while facing the quo warranto petition from Solicitor General Jose Calida in Supreme Court.
Inspite of this circumstances, Senate President Vicente ‘Tito’ Sotto and other law makers made clear that it will end by March 2022.
“In the end I pray that the true interest of the people, under the rule of law, will prevail over any other political agenda conveniently veild as a countermeasure against alleged abuses,” Dingdong added.
Calida want to clear that theres no politics involved in her action against the station and he is doing this because of the foreign investments to ABSCBN and running KBO without any permit from National Telecommunications Commission.
President Rodrigo Duterte said many times that he doesnt want ABS contract to be renewed, especially because they didnt air his political advertisements in the last presidential election on 2016.
Dingdong is a former commissioner of National Youth Commission and now he is leading the remake if the South Korean hit-show ‘Descendants of the Sun.”
“Dingdong Dantes Supporter” trended nationwide as twitter netizens shows admiration for what Dingdong did.
